This cool set of cards features the work of French painter and sculptor Jean du Buffet (1901-1985) whose idealistic approach to aesthetics embraced the concept of "low art" (aka Brut Art), forsaking the traditional standards of beauty for a more authentic and human approach to art. Each card shows an abstract representation of more or less concrete objects, persons, or other elements.
Includes a card with a list of all images, with their French name translated to English. Includes box. Prints are only in blue, black, white and red.
